ARC Identifier 2569524 / Local Identifier 111-TV-254. Japan is the key to the fate of the Far East. Once again for the second time in the march of modern history those words have urgent reality. But now there is a difference in their meaning. THE BIG PICTURE cameras focus on the United States Army which has come to know Japan well in recent years -- in war, in occupation, and finally, in partnership. In the record of that relationship there can be found the changing symbol of Japan's place in the Far East. Once it was a symbol of destruction. Today we look upon it with hope as a symbol of stability.
